{{ 'About' | translate }} Community Crowdfunding

During the Coronavirus Crisis we have seen the amazing resilience, innovation and compassion of people within our community. As we emerge from the current crisis, it is hoped that this crowdfunding programme will become a positive springboard for a locally-led revival, where local groups come up with attractive project ideas to benefit the community, and generate financial and volunteer time support from residents, businesses and the council. The council will have an amount of match-funding available to pledge towards local crowdfunding projects/campaigns through the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), as long as projects meet the selection criteria and there are sufficient available funds. The Community Crowdfunding programme runs two funding rounds a year in the Spring and Autumn. See below for information on the funding available, how to get involved before the next deadline and the free to attend community workshops.

Digital Equipment & Access in Redbridge
Digital Equipment & Access in Redbridge joined Community Crowdfunding2 weeks ago

In 2020 we discovered that there were a large number of children in the borough without digital access. Recent estimates have put that number at 7,000. ome children have had little to zero learning for nearly a year and many have faced total isolation since March 2020. We are expanding this project to include refurbishing preloved equipment and distributing to schools. The grant will be used for the following: advertising for donations of devices on facebook, we will aim to promote one advert per week for 5 weeks. We will be undertaking all advertising ourselves and will carry out DBS checks for volunteers refurbishing the devices. After refurbishment devices will be delivered to pre delivery storage at Safe Storage facility in Barking.
